 About the Book 

Most exercise books offer a generic, one-size-fits-all approach to fitness, with the same workouts for everyone. Unfortunately, not everyone is alike.

Unfortunately, not everyone is alike. Each body possesses a unique combination of muscle fibers, and understanding ones muscle makeup can have a huge impact on the success of an exercise program-a fact that, until now, has been largely ignored. The body has both fast-twitch and slow-twitch muscle fibers. Fast-twitch fibers are responsible for explosive, powerful movements-jumping, weight lifting, and so on. Slow-twitch fibers are used during endurance activities, such as walking and running. Exercise is more effective if it is based on an individuals personal combination of muscle fibers. This book is useful for athletes, weekend warriors, and those just starting an exercise program. Whether a reader is predominantly slow twitch, fast twitch, or a balance of the two, he or she will find the right exerciseprogram for his or her body type. With Exercise for Your Muscle Type, readers can: Use muscle makeup to achieve greater athletic success. Tailor workouts to address particular strengths and weaknesses. Follow detailed exercise plans provided for each muscle type. Discover new sports and activities that more closely fit a specific body type. People are often dissatisfied with the success of their exercise programs or activities, but they may simply have been the wrong programs for their muscular structure. Exercise for Your Muscle Type eliminates this frustration by showing readers how they are built and by helping them put together an appropriate personalized comprehensive exercise program. With a better understanding of ones own body, anyone can achieve his or her fitness goals more quickly
